Lightning Returns to Launch with Tomb Raider DLC


Square-Enix has revealed that Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be getting DLC that features a costume based on Lara Croft’s appearance in the Tomb Raider reboot.

Using Lara’s outfit will give Lightning a riot shield and an axe similar to the one Lara uses in Tomb Raider.

Lightning is already able to dress like characters of other Final Fantasy games like Yuna from Final Fantasy X and Cloud from Final Fantasy VII, but this is the first costume to be featured in the game that comes from a series outside the Final Fantasy franchise.

While this is a first for Lightning Returns, this isn’t the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy’s first crossover, as Final Fantasy XIII-2 featured outfits from both the Mass Effect and Assassin’s Creed universes.

The DLC will launch alongside Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII when it is released on February 11th for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
